Two months ago, László Botka (Socialist MP and mayor of the city of Szeged) announced his candidacy for the position of prime minister but he can't find any allies on the opposition side. The parties Együtt (Together), DK (Democratic Coalition), Moma (Modern Hungary), Párbeszéd (Dialogue) and LMP (Politics can be different) are all strictly keeping aloof from the man.
A survey by Závecz Research shows that DK was the only party that was able to grow and to become stronger. László Botka's verbal attacks against Gyurcsány (chairman of DK and former prime minister) have resulted in unity of DK sympathizers and in consolidation of the Democratic Coalition. All other opposition parties have become weaker.
Gyurcsány's party have achieved all this in such a way that, let's admit it, they did not do anything memorable in the past month.
The two most important pieces of news relating to them were that László Lengyel (economist, political analyst) tried to divert a vice chairman of DK against Gyurcsány and that Botka started to call the chairman of DK a liar and called on him to leave politics.
